Graphene Oxide: a new water contaminant and how we MIGHT get rid of it.
A (friendly) alien soon realises that he or she (or it) is talking to a bag of water. Nobel laureate Albert Szent-Gyorgyi takes it even further: “Life is water, dancing to the tune of macro molecules.” So.. the alien is talking to water. So let’s talk about drinking water.
Is your water filter / water bottle / water jug / water ionizer Bisphenol-A free? Have you asked for proof?
What you need to know about these two nasty toxins in your water: Bisphenol-A and Phthalates.

In a 2004 study, 37 adults were admitted to a Singapore hospital with acute pesticide poisoning (organophosphates or carbamate) over a three-year period, and 62 percent of these patients later developed cardiac complications.
Real world example of the Problem of doing nothing about PFAs water contamination, and how to get it OUT of your water.
There’s no “safe levels” of heavy metal exposure.. and that includes LEAD.
